Marshall: Hero for Our Times
Marshall: Hero for Our Times
By Leonard Mosley
Hearst Books, 1982, 608 pp

General George C. Marshall deliberately maintained a cold and formal manner. Observers in his lifetime, and historians since, have had difficulty describing him as a personality or explaining his greatness. Mosley, a prolific biographer, succeeds. Although the book contains little new on matters of high policy, it brings the General alive. Here is a portrait of courage, patience, controlled but powerful emotion, and sharp analytical intelligence.
